Missing mscorlib.dll for a simple WinForms application in Lubuntu Raring 13.04

November 15th, 2013 No comments

I wanted to execute the DownloadSVN.exe application from Linux but received the following error:

The assembly mscorlib.dll was not found or could not be loaded.The assembly mscorlib.dll was not found or could not be loaded. 
It should have been installed in the ‘/usr/lib/mono/2.0/mscorlib.dll’ directory.

This means that there are some components missing from the default installation of  Mono in Lubuntu. All I can see at ./usr/lib/mono/  are the gac and 4.0 folders.

I could have possibly recompiled the application, but instead, I decided to install the missing packages.

From the command line:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install  mono-complete

This is a 37Mb installation and it creates the required 2.0 folder.
